Since it came to light recently that King's College London is planning to forcibly retire and sack professors of philosophy a campaign protesting these decisions has built up. Students and friends of the Dept. have established a website that includes an open letter that you can go to and sign. There is an additional separate letter available on-line that is also open to signature. Meanwhile, not content with this attack on philosophy, the management of KCL have also decided not to renew the post of Chair in Palaeography there, which was, until recently, the only such position in the UK. To protest against this further act of vandalism see and please sign the petition against this. The combination of these two attacks demonstrate clearly how committed the management of KCL are to maintaining a world-class research base in the UK.
